New hand baggage security requirements on flights to the United Kingdom

Due to new regulations announced by the related authorities in the United Kingdom, we would like to kindly inform our guests that any electronic device larger than a mobile phone or a smart phone, (ie any laptops, tablets, e-readers, gaming devices, keyboards, power cable transformers, spare or separate device batteries, portable power sources or external hard drives larger than 16cm long, 9.3cm wide or 1.5cm deep) are not permitted to be carried on board (with the passenger) on any of our flights arriving to any UK destination.

Spare or separate device batteries and portable power sources larger than 16.0cm (length) x 9.3cm (wide) x 1.5cm (deep) are not permitted to be carried cabin or checked baggage either.

New cabin rules for all electronic devices carried on board as of 25th March 2017:

1. Only electronic devices and smart phones smaller than the following dimensions will be allowed in the cabin:

- Length: 16 cm

- Width: 9.3 cm

- Depth: 1.5 cm

2. All electronic devices larger than the allowed size except for medical devices must be checked-in at the airport check-in counters by placing them inside checked baggage to be transported in the baggage hold area underneath the aircraft.

3. For all electronic devices which must be checked-in for placement in the baggage hold:

- Due to the security controls when entering Turkish airports, anyone entering the airport will be required to abide by the airport security regulations by removing their laptops and tablets from their bags as they pass through the security check. For this reason, we reccomend that when entering the airport, that laptops and tablets are in an easily removable place if placed in luggage, or that it is carried in hand luggage until check-in at which point it will need to be again placed into the check-in luggage for placement in the baggage hold.

- All devices must be switched off when packed into check-in baggage and must not be connected or fitted to any kind of portable charging device,

- Should be packed into strong boxes or safe packaging that will protect the device from damage during transportation and loading,

- Devices must be packed into the check-in baggage separately from all liquids (perfume, cream etc.)

- Spare or separate device batteries and portable power sources(powerbanks) larger than the allowed size should not be carried inside the cabin and inside the checked baggage

4. Transit guests must hand over the electronic devices which are not permitted to be carried on board at the boarding gate of their flights to the UK.

The restriction is only applicable on flights arriving to the UK and does not affect flights departing from the UK to Turkey.
